Egypt's tourism and antiquities minister said on Saturday,... that the 59 coffins belonging to priests and clerks, had been buried in three wells,... more than 2-thousand-600 years ago.
"All these coffins belong to the late period, most probably around the 26th dynasty, in the 7th/6th century BC. That means they've been sealed for more than 2-thousand-6-hundred years."
